Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check - Aug 25, 2016
August 25, 2016
Trash talk and satellite dish:
The estate of JOHNNY CARSON's ex-wife, JOANNE, is auctioning off some of TRUMAN CAPOTE's ashes.
Yes, it's more than a little weird, but as it turns out, she and Truman were best friends, and he often lived and wrote at her Los Angeles home until his death --also at her home-- in 1984.
Then, after his death, Joanne received a portion of his ashes, which are going to be auctioned off by Julien's Auctions on Sep 24 as part of her estate. They're valued at up to $6-thousand dollars, although who knows what the bidding will bring.
As you know, Capote wrote "In Cold Blood" and "Breakfast At Tiffany's" among his body of work.
Trolling for publicity:
SELENIS LEYVA from "Orange Is the New Black" has a soft spot for furbabies. The actress tells Us Weeklythat she adopted a feral cat named "Oreo" after the feline was left outside her apartment complex. Unfortunately, the kitty wouldn't let anyone touch her for two, long months, only came out for food and finally let mom pet her! Oreo still isn't the friendliest pet on the block, but is madly in love with the family's new dog, "Zeus." (Lee)
Butts! You have one. I have one. We all have one. But (with one "t") this season, Fashionista.com says "Butts are the new pants!" They say Victoria's Secret models have been filling their Instagram feeds with lingerie-clad bums at a heavier-than-typical volume. Singer KACY HILL shows off her butt tattoo on the cover of the new V magazine. CARA DELEVINGNE's naked butt is the star attraction on the September cover of Esquire U.K And KENDALL JENNER tells Vogue that this month she wishes everyone would pay just a little more attention to her own butt. Taken all together, that makes 2016 the year of the butt! (Bartha)
At the local Cop Shop:
A pair of Denver-area police officers are now forbidden from training new recruits, thanks to Pokemon Go.
The Commerce City cops were reportedly stripped of their field training duties after supervisors allegedly caught them playing the popular app while on the job. The officers were supposed to be training recruits at the time. A spokesperson for the department says they take these types of misconduct reports seriously. (Still)
